A place to centralize info about new beasts in the next expansion that have potential to be hunter pets. Not all of these may become tameable, but we can hope! Many Petopians have contributed to this list, but special thanks go to Spiritbinder and Inico for most of the new images, and to Slickrock for much of our early info during the WoD preview at Blizzcon.

Click on the small images to see larger versions!

New families
Existing families - new models
Previously too high to tame
New models of unknown status
Unconfirmed models
Other things we might see yet


CONFIRMED NEW FAMILIES:
The patch notes confirm three new pet families: Riverbeasts, Hydras and Hook Wasps.

Riverbeasts
There's at least five different colours of these heavy-duty hippopotami:

Image Image Image Image Image



Hydras
We've waited six expansions for this! Hydras have been confirmed as a new family in WoD. There's one new model: the "Thunder Hydra". We can probably also expect all the old ones to become tameable, and there are quite a few!

Thunder Hydras
Note that this may be a very early incarnation of the model. We're not sure. We're aware of four colours:

Image Image Image Image

Azeroth Hydras

ImageHydraSkinBlack : Strashaz Hydra
ImageHydraSkinBlue : Mystlash Hydra
ImageHydraSkinGreen : Lost Offspring of Gahz'ranka
ImageHydraSkinRed : Trigore the Lasher (Rare)
ImageHydraSkinSilver : Aku'mai (Boss) & Bittertide Hydra
ImageHydraSkinViolet : Gesharahan (Rare), Vorsha the Lasher (Horde only, quest)
ImageHydraSkinWhite : Gahz'rilla (Boss), Thessala Hydra
ImageHydraSkinWhite (Ghostly) : Spirit of Atha. This was the only hydra that was ever tameable (by accident). They may or may not elect to make it tameable again as it's a spirit from a quest.
Not in Game:
ImageHydraSkinBronze : was only available on Wavethrasher and Young Wavethrasher in Azshara (both removed). Hopefully some could be returned.

Outland Hydras

ImageHydraSkinOutland : Parched Hydra
ImageHydraSkinOutlandBlack : Mragesh
ImageHydraSkinOutlandBlue : Fenclaw Thrasher & Mire Hydra
ImageHydraSkinOutlandGreen : Ghaz'an & Leviathan
ImageHydraSkinOutlandPurple : Markaru

Abominable Hydra-looking Thingies

ImageChimeraBeast : Chimaeron - Confirmed tameable by JF


Hook Wasps (Exotic)
We haven't seen any models for these new flying nasties yet. All we have to go on is concept art from Blizzcon, which was referred to as a dragonfly. We believe it's this creature which was renamed to "hook wasp". The patch notes indicate that this family will be Exotic.

Image



NEW MODELS FOR EXISTING FAMILIES:

Wolves
One new model, which closely resembles recent wolf mounts such as the Kor'kron War Wolf. There are a few new saddled versions which may become player mounts, but there are also at least five wild colours:

Image Image Image Image Image


Boars
One new model, which resembles a high-textured and uncorrupted helboar. There are at least five wild colours:

Image Image Image Image Image


Sporebats
One new model with at least three colours. They're a bit more detailed than the originals:

Image Image Image


Bats
The shiny new bat model added in MoP has not yet been implemented for wild tameable beasts. We had reports that they've been spotted in WoD, which makes them great candidates for expanding this tiny family:

Image Image Image Image Image


Chimaeras
At least one new model: a non-mount version of the chimaera design used for the Iron Skyreaver (there's a second new mount model, which looks more creepy and reptilian, but we don't know if a non-mount version has been produced). There are at least three wild colours in the wild "Skyreaver" style so far: green, red and white/fawn:

Image Image Image

The tan skin (used for the Iron Skyreaver mount) has also been spotted on the wild model, but it does leave some weird-looking shoulder straps:

Image



CURRENTLY TOO HIGH LEVEL, BUT SHOULD BE TAMEABLE IN WoD:
These are beasts that are already flagged as tameable but are currently too high to tame. Of course we can't be certain they're tameable until someone is able to try!

Cats
Image Crag Stalker (Timeless Isle)
Image Primal Stalker (Timeless Isle)
Image Tsavo'ka <Ghost in the Darkness> (Rare) (Timeless Isle)

Crabs
Image Kalan'ii (Vale of Eternal Blossoms)
Image Ancient Spineclaw (Timeless Isle) - NEW LOOK
Image Monstrous Spineclaw (Timeless Isle) - NEW LOOK

Devilsaurs
Image Primal Devilsaur (Isle of Giants)
Image Primal Devilsaur (Isle of Giants)
Image Primal Devilsaur (Isle of Giants)
Image Primal Devilsaur (Isle of Giants)
Image Primal Devilsaur (Isle of Giants)

Direhorns
Image Primal Direhorn (Isle of Giants)
Image Primal Direhorn (Isle of Giants)
Image Primal Direhorn (Isle of Giants)
Image Primal Direhorn (Isle of Giants)
Image Primal Direhorn (Isle of Giants)

Quilen
Image Stone Quilen, Enormous Stone Quilen & Frenzied Stone Quilen (Mogu'shan Vaults)
Image Amethyst Guardian (Boss) (Mogu'shan Vaults)
Image Cobalt Guardian (Boss) (Mogu'shan Vaults)
Image Jade Guardian (Boss) (Mogu'shan Vaults)
Image Jasper Guardian (Boss) (Mogu'shan Vaults)


Scorpids
Image Kri'chon (Rare) (Vale of Eternal Blossoms)

Spiders
Image Bloodtip (Rare) (Vale of Eternal Blossoms)

Turtles
Image Elder Great Turtle (Timeless Isle)
Image Goda (Isle of Thunder)

Wolves
Image Cracklefang (Rare) (Vale of Eternal Blossoms)



OTHER NEW MODELS WITH POTENTIAL:

Toucans
We're not sure if these new, extremely colourful birds will be tameable yet, but Jeremy Feasel suggested they may. We know that at least one colour (black) is being used for a companion pet. There are at least four colours:

Image Image Image Image


Dread Ravens
The Dread Raven model, which is used for the mount, also has a no-armour version. This could very easily become a Carrion Bird or Bird of Prey. There's good evidence we may see quite a few of them on Draenor.

Image


Clefthooves
OK, so clefthooves aren't currently tameable, but they're so much like Rhinos they should be! Aside from the existing Outland model, WoD introduces a tusked version with at least five colours:

Image Image Image Image Image


Talbuks
One new, angry-looking model. There's no indication these will become tameable, but it would certainly be awesome (and also fitting for the expansion) if they could be added to a goat/caprid family. There are at least five colours:

Image Image Image Image Image



MODELS NOT CONFIRMED (just concept art):
Note that it's not uncommon for concept art to never reach the model stage. So don't get your heart set on these...

Tallstriders
Concept art for a new tallstrider was shown at Blizzcon:

Image


WHAT ELSE MIGHT WE EXPECT TO SEE?

The following are just guesses based on datamined items and spells. Many of them may have no bearing on what we see in the wild, but who knows? :)

  • Moths are appearing in the database but they use the existing model. Some have novel body/wing combos. We can't be sure if they'll be used for beasts or critters / battle pets. But we know moths should exist on Draneor.
  • We're not sure whether the original Outland models for hydras, chimaeras, sporebats etc. will appear alongside their new counterparts. If so, maybe the last unused Outland chimaera skin will finally be available.
  • It would also make sense for there to be ravagers, nether rays, warp stalkers, spore walkers, Outland-style wind serpents, two-headed vultures, kaliri etc. But aside from a couple of ravagers and warp stalkers (with existing looks) in the database, there hasn't been much sign of them yet. It's still early, however!
  • There are new cooking recipes that require scorpion or basilisk meat, which suggests that these beasts should be present. Of course neither is very surprising and they could well use existing models. There are also miscellaneous spells in the database referencing worms and spiders, suggesting that these also will be present. Again, no idea of the model. A summoning spell for a Trained Bonestripper suggests vultures. Again, to be expected.
  • More interestingly, there's a bunch of spells referring to centipedes. Unless they're using the old sandreaver model it'll be interesting to see what they look like! It's possible they're just critters, too. There are a bunch of jormungar models in the database, so they could be used as (or placeholders for) these centipedes.
  • There's also a number of spells referring to "void wolves" and "void howlers", whatever those may be. Perhaps they'll look like ghost wolves. Since they're all referenced in summoning spells, there may be no wild versions anyway. In fact there are quite a few spells for summoning ghost wolves, so it'll be interesting to see if they've added fancy new ones based on the new model or are using the Vanilla ones.
  • Same goes for "cinder wolves" though the summoning spells for those are probably (guessing) the helhound model.
  • And then there's the dreaded and enigmatic Tigurtlefly...

Well, one beastie from the Warlords of Draenor trailer. An armoured boar using a slightly new look. I missed it but SB caught it. Just a crude shot for now.

Image

Spiked, but double tusks like an Azeroth boar. The spikes are higher up in the mane than the felboars. The texture seems to have more muscles.

Here's a slightly better image of that, Wain.

Image

I really, really like the colour of its fur, actually. I'm not big on boars, but I like this one.

There are a few tamable looking mobs in the artwork on the official page. One looks like an updated tallstrider model. It looks more primal

That is one gorgeous boar! Hope they have unarmored models too.

The frogs from Timeless Isle are in Shadowmoon Valley so that may be a possibility!

There are those wolves in the clip as well, and I also noticed the wolves the Frostwolf clan are riding have ears!! So there might be an unarmored tamable version of those.

I think the wolves that shaman was chasing in the trailer were using the updated model too.

Just saw an unarmoured version of the new boar in a dungeon preview and it looks awesome. Much more detailed!

Could still be a pet too! We can tame a lot of things that are also mounts!

The chimera, though, they claimed to have atack animations, and even be fought as a boss. Might have some tameable ones, then :D (even if 'just' as new chimera pet skins)

Concept art shots from the main site ( http://us.battle.net/wow/en/warlords-of-draenor/ ). These may or may not ever appear in the game (apart from the wolf, which is confirmed). Plenty of concept art never does.

Seems to be just the new wolf but FINALLY in a no-armour model! MaximumOverdrive posted a shot of it in-game above. So this one isconfirmed:

Image

New tallstrider, mentioned above:

Image

A toucan! This is uncannily like SpiritBinder's recent art. He swears he's not secretly working for Blizzard.

Image

A.... weird long-tailed hippothingamus EDIT: it's called a riverbeast according to Slickrock who is at the con:

Image

The new dragonfly:

Image


No shot yet: The new chimaera. It's not on their main site and I can't find a good shot of it yet.

Yeah, the "stegaphant" things didn't look much like tameables, but the spikes also suggest they won't be mounts, so I'm not sure about those :/

While cool, if it's as massive as they say, I'd put that on the unlikely list.

Even the chimera I'm unsure BUT yanno...could be wrong. The unarmored wolf is one I'm super stoked about.

There are some really awesome arts there. The dragonfly looks wicked mean, the whale looks beautiful, the mammothlekk looks awesome. The hippothingything looks also nice! In fact, it all just looks awesome. I hope we get some cool pets here. I would kill for the dragonfly, though. That's epic incarnate.
